Author has written 3 stories for Twilight.
I am a 36 year old married woman with three stepkids (22, 19, and 17), one grandbaby (2), and one of "ours" (4). Apparently, questionable mental stability is a requirement to live in my house: I have a cat that thinks she's a human (and if I were a witch, would be my familiar. We actually talk to each other. Freaks my hubby out.), another cat that thinks he's a dog (begs for attention? what cat does that? Apparently, ours.), and an 80 lb. dog that is actually a big chicken (she's afraid of everything! Getting run over by a stampeding 80lb dog is no picnic!). My issue: depression and obsession with Twilight FanFic. Hubby's: relatively normal, I suppose, other than extreme procrastination. My 4 yr old, freakin' scary smart. Knows how to give directions (incredible spatial relationship awareness, not only does he know where we're going, but why), incredible memory (don't say you'll do something if you don't fully intend to do it, he will call you on it.) and major attitude to boot.
I was a late Twibloomer, as I didn't start the series until Christmas 2008. My husband does not understand my obsession with the Twilight FanFiction, but he enjoys the results at times. I recently started my first fanfiction (A Soldier's Coming Home) and have plans to re-vamp a novel I wrote five+ years ago in hopes of getting published. I have discovered a talent, of sorts, for writing lemons. When I set a story as "Mature", I mean it. They get pretty graphic, so consider yourself warned. I write it like I want to read it (aka experience it).
UPDATE 12/24/09 - I just uploaded my third story, second one-shot. And I am on my fourth novel. I've got the third one out in hopes of publishing it right now, so keep your fingers crossed for me!
I am a happy ending kind of girl. I get enough unhappy stuff from life. I read to escape, not to be bludgeoned with reality. That being said, I don't map out a story ahead of time. I let the character's take me where they want to go, but with the view that, in the end, they're gonna end up happy (and probably well-sated).
I hate when main characters die. I hate more when I'm not warned of it in the summary.
I love Edward, even though I would probably not get along with him.
I totally identified with Bella. I am Bella, twenty years later, fat, married to Jacob with kids (cubs?), never having met my Edward. At this point, I don't think I'd want to.
I would rather be turned in my mid-30's than early 20's. Way more room for age progression.
If I had a choice of one superpower, it would be telekenesis, easy.
If I can't become a vampire, I'd like to become a werecat. I would love to have a tail. And have a human to take care of the hair and butt for me.

Update Soldier is finished and posted. Thank you so much to everyone who has read it and especially to my reviewers!! I am working on a (hopefully) publishable novel at the moment, but I am toying with a few one-shot ideas. Haven't gotten the inspiration for any multi-chapter Twistories yet, but I'm guessing they'll come. If you have ideas you'd like to share, PM me!
